California hugs the western coast of the US, home of vibrant cities, awe-inspiring nature and over 800 miles of glorious Pacific coastline waiting to be explored. You’ll find more national parks in California than any other state, each offering awe-inspiring nature on a grand scale – choose from the desert landscapes found along the Mexican border, the rugged mountain ranges of central California, up to the evergreen forests in the far north of the state. 

California’s famous coastal cities offer a variety of flavour. Head to liberal San Francisco, glamorous Beverly Hills or chilled San Diego, home of the SoCal spirit. With golden sunsets, endless beaches, and easygoing people, it’s easy to fall in love with Cali.
